Hull, Ted H., Miles, Ruth Harbin., Balks, Don S. (2012). The Common Core Mathematics Standards: Transforming Practice Through Team Leadership. Thousand Oaks, CA. Corwin, A Sage Company. Pp. xi + 203 ISBN 978-1-4522-2622-4

"The Common Core Mathematics Standards: Transforming Practice Through Team Leadership is specifically designed to help leaders responsible for mathematics instruction as they work jointly with teachers to adopt and implement the CCSS for mathematics and the Standards for Mathematical Practice."(Hull et al., 2012, p. 6) This book had a unique emphasis on teachers and their ability to change instructional strategies and consequentially students’ thinking about mathematics ( Hull et al., p.34). The organization of the text is very user friendly. It is presented one step at a time as the process of implementation would within a building.

This text is broken into four parts. The first three chapters are specific instructions for the leadership team and how they need to lead their staff (Hull et al., 2012). The second part, chapters four through six, is over implementation and the challenges that the leaders will face (Hull et al., 2012). The third section, chapter seven and eight, is how the leaders are to support the teachers with the implementation and the variety of teacher ability levels (Hull et al., 2012). Last, chapter 9 and the appendix gives a review of the change and sample problems to discuss (Hull et al., 2012).

First presented are four strategies to help overcome "system inertia" (Hull et al., p.7). These are: promoting adoption and avoiding rejection, focusing on students bring success, building support for collegial relationships, and maintaining support to increase implementation (Hull et al., 2012).
